The University of Amsterdam
The University of Amsterdam has its origins in the Athenaeum Illustre (1632) and, with more than 32,000 students, over 5,000 employees and an annual budget of 600 million euros, is one of the largest general research universities in Europe.
In the 2012-13 QS ranking, the UvA is ranked 62d overall, the highest-ranked Dutch university on the list. As of 2010, QS publishes its World University Ranking independently. Previously, the QS ranking was established in partnership with THE. The ranking ranks the top 700 universities in the world and is based on scores for the quality of research (citations and peer review), student-to-faculty ratio, the proportion of international students and faculty, and the reputation of institutions among employers.
